Skoolie Woodburner

I already have a wood burner I decided not to use for space and insurance concerns. But if I was to change my mind, this stove looks like it belongs in a skoolie. Price is not outrageous,but it's in Wa.

Very cool.

I love those stoves. That is a pretty reasonable price compared to others I have seen for sale.

I've been in hunting camps that use a very similar stove. They throw a lot of heat if you stoke them up but also can hold a nice temp with just a small fire. If it's fully functional, I can see it working well in a bus. I hope you manage to get it because the price is good.

I got lucky and found one of these woodburners that Lowes has for $750. Found it on Craigs List for $100.

Since you've got personal experience with stoves like this....what size wood chunks are we talking here? Possible to put in regular firewood lengths or do they need to be cut into smaller chunks?

It's hard to guess the size from that pic Drew, but it looks like it could handle 14 inch pcs. The ones at the camp took about that length. The circumference of the stove dictates max size of course.

not always the taller stoves you can always throw your longer pieces on end standing up.
wont last as long as being able to bank them up laying flat but shore would heat things up quicker to get coals to bank some shorter stuff before bed.

OK...I should have read the ad. I read it as 16 inches which means 14 inch pcs would be just about right. Because the are tall and there is a fair amount on top, the big challenge would be to secure it in a moving vehicle. In an accident it could leave a mark.

Whole unit is 16" wide, bowl looks at least 3" smaller in dia. Maybe upright, but sideways sitcks 14" probably won't fit.

Thanks....right now we're working with 6" lengths and the stove needs pretty frequent tending. I've been looking at those potbelly stoves from time to time and always wondered if that was a solution to our woodstove dilema. We're looking for something compact, but with a decent burn time.
